NYTimes Graphic Radicals Review

Holland Cotter at the New York Times gave the WW3 show at Exit a fine write up. Here's an excerpt: "Best of all, World War 3 Illustrated, like Exit Art, is still alive and well. A new issue, called “The Food Chain,” is out. As always it mixes newcomers and veterans, emphasizes content over style (but has plenty of style), keeps that content accessible and critical, and pays its printers and distributors but no one else.

If it had nothing more than that kind of dedication to recommend it, it would be invaluable. But it has much, much more."

"A Secret Mercy" to be in color

My next book, "A Secret Mercy," is turned in to Henry Holt for Young Readers. It has two interlocking stories that take place in two different time periods. I'm excited that they decided to go for color so I could use it as a storytelling tool.
